Robinson Research Institute

Robinson Research Institute

The Robinson Research Institute seeks to deliver world-class research advances in human reproduction, pregnancy and child health, and to inform clinical care, policy and practice that will improve health across generations and global communities.

The institute is a collective of internationally renowned researchers in human reproduction, pregnancy and child health at the University of Adelaide. We focus on the early stages of life to improve the health and well-being of children and families over the life course and across generations, in Australia and around the world.

We seek to enable a healthy start through fertility choices and mindful conception, nurturing the baby during pregnancy and birth, strengthening the brain and body in early life, and advancing child and adolescent health to treat and prevent disease.
